Mrs. Bentley recently completed the Boston Marathon to raise money for Safe Haven, a charity that aims to end family homelessness through education and advocacy.

Dierks tells CMT’s Cody Alan that while he enjoys staying active, he never seems himself participating in a marathon.

“I ran 8 miles once and I was sore for about three weeks. It hurt real bad,” the “Black” singer says exclusively. “I work out every morning from 5 to 6, so I like exercising. Long runs over a long period of time, it hurts. There’s no way I’m ever going to do one. I can’t imagine running a marathon. It’s so far! So much respect for anyone who’s ever done that.”

With the help of friends, family and celebrity donors like Nicole Kidman, Sheryl Crow and more, Cassidy’s run raised more than $23,000 for Safe Haven.

She finished the marathon in just 3 hours and 26 minutes.
